A superb opportunity to acquire this spacious, two storey, five bedroom, detached, semi-developed property which presents a chance to finish it to the buyer’s taste and specification.

The property benefits from underfloor heating, electric wiring, plumbing with some areas being insulated, plasterboard, taped, filled and painted. Upon completion this property would make a beautiful, spacious family home.

The additional Workshop provides for a well-equipped area to finish this project, with potential for change of use into a one-bedroom bungalow (subject to the usual council consents) as it has its own Shower Room with toilet and ample living space.
